Does anyone have a recipe for a "Veggie Burger" without beans or do you know what I can substitute the beans with?
Thanks so much!!!
I think you could use a patty of mashed potatoes with some other veggies(peas,carrots etc) and then fried.Then proceed as usual.
Vicki, I've tried a million of them (and I have a good black bean recipe that I've developed if you want it) but the best non-bean veggie burgers I've made with TVP. If you're not familiar with TVP (textured vegetable protein) you can find it at Whole Foods if you are near one or I've ordered it online. I can't think of the online store I've ordered from but I've heard good things about Dixie Diner
You can find recipes on fatfree.com but I usually just use with my old meat-based recipes. The only difference is that you have to re-constitute TVP with boiling water and I usually add a cube or two of veggie bullion for flavor. I'm sure this is way more info than you wanted, but if you have any questions feel free to email me directly.
Susan, could you post your black bean burger recipe? Thanks!
Quick and easy - TVP (makes just three)
1/2 tsp onion powder
3/4 cup BOILING water
1 cup of TVP
1 small diced onion
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp garlic powder
pinch of pepper
1/2 tsp oregano
1Tlb of soy sauce
1 tlb of tomato paste for color
Combine, knead and use like like raw hamburger
Lots of work, but delicious - Millet Burgers
Vicki - My favorite burger is Fantastic's dry mix Nature Burger. It's grain based. Very, very tasty if fried crisp in some oil. Crisp is the secret! I like it on a Kaiser roll with lots of salt and pepper, lettuce, mayo, and b&b pickles.
Used as a main dish, it's also good smothered in stewed tomatoes.
